The Winsley Weaver carries notices of forthcoming local activities -plays, festivals, fundraising events – reports from village organizations and a monthly diary. There are six pages of advertisements for local businesses, and small ads can be put in one issue by arrangement. No charge is made for notices of charitable or non-profit events.

We encourage articles of general interest – book reviews, notes on local history, or occasional accounts of travel if they are interesting and “different.” If they are not immediately topical, they might be held over until there is space.

Our deadline for submissions is 14th of each month, (except December). Articles should not normally exceed 350 words, though we can make exceptions by arrangement. In selecting material, we give priority to events or organisations in Winsley, and then in Bradford on Avon. Inclusion of notices of events further afield would depend on space.

The Weaver can be bought at the Village shop and The Hartley Farm Shop. However for a modest annual subscription, it can be delivered to your door, usually in time for the first of the month.
